About the Course:

The sessions will encourage you to explore and discover the type of therapist you want to be. By committing to values-based activities, you will learn to evaluate your effectiveness in a more holistic manner. This is done by encouraging you to make more mindful clinical decisions, based on your knowledge and skills as a clinician and to develop an ability to distinguish this from what our minds sometimes tell us is happening.

Our training will explore our own self-doubt and pave a path to greater competence by encouraging you to be curious about your discomfort and be willing learn from it.

Building Psychological Flexibility from the ground up

Finally, the training will introduce small habits of self-care that focus on mindfulness and psychological flexibility that are easy to weave into work routines. . Psychological flexibility is a scientific and empirically supported phenomenon in behavioural science. What the research tells us is that when a person increases psychological flexibility, their well-being, their functioning, and their mental health improves. This training encourages you to look inward, promoting greater wellbeing personally and in your work as a clinician.

What you will Learn:

  • Rebalance the therapist’s focus on what you do rather than what you think should be done
  • Learn to manage and protect the therapeutic relationship, especially with difficult clients through the purposeful direction
  • Learn to be a consistent therapist through nuanced self-care practices
  • Learn a four-step process for building compassion in your client sessions, supervisions, and everyday life.
  • Learn to think outside the box and to nurture an open mind
  • Build emotional and cognitive flexibility

How will it work?

The course is divided into 6 x 2 hours of live training sessions. The online training sessions take place every two months starting in November 2021 and finishing in September 2022.

Attendees will have access to an online private community so that you can discuss topics, share experiences and offer support to other course members.
